The Fugitive

 (1993)

The Fugitive Blu-ray features poor video and decent audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

Harrison Ford is prison escapee Dr. Richard Kimble, a Chicago surgeon falsely convicted of killing his wife and determined to prove his innocence by leading his pursuers to the one-armed man who actually committed the crime. Tommy Lee Jones is Sam Gerard, an unrelenting bloodhound of a U.S. Marshal. They are hunter and hunted. And as directed by Andrew Davis (Under Siege), their nonstop chase has one exhilarating speed: all-out.

For more about The Fugitive and the The Fugitive Blu-ray release, see the The Fugitive Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.0 out of 5.

Starring: Harrison Ford, Tommy Lee Jones, Sela Ward, Joe Pantoliano, Jeroen Krabbé, Julianne Moore

The Fugitive Blu-ray, Video Quality

  2.0 of 5

Warner Brothers presents The Fugitive on Blu-ray in a high-definition, MPEG-2 encoded, 1.85:1 framed transfer that's mostly abysmal. This particular transfer offers viewers a soft, undefined image that lacks detail. Colors are muted (though likely intentionally so), poor compression rears its ugly head on several occasions, and the image is just bland and sometimes even painful to look at. It's such a shame, because the movie itself is outstanding. I can generally overlook a flawed transfer of a good movie, letting the movie suck me into its world, forgetting all the tangible elements that accompany a presentation, but this one had me scratching my head at times, shocked and disappointed by the low quality of the presentation, and aghast at some scenes that are downright atrocious in presentation. I haven't seen a Blu-ray transfer this bad since Young Guns. Even my non-techie wife noticed this one was subpar. The quality definitely picks up a bit as the movie wears on, but it's still rather dull and flat, and detail is moderate at best. There is a definite lack of definition and attention to fine detail evident throughout. Kimble's hair, especially after the train wreck, often looks like a glob of color rather than fine, individual strands of hair. Black levels are moderately good at best, and dark scenes are plagued by extreme amounts of grain. Some bad compression is present throughout, noted primarily on straight, shiny objects (especially on chrome-colored lines on cars), looking blocky and chunky rather than straight and natural. Granted, director Andrew Davis, director of Under Siege, has employed a similar style in both that film and this one, a bleak, muted, and "grainy" look, a look that definitely doesn't lend itself very well to a "pretty picture." Still, there's nothing to be excited about with this transfer. The experience is best described as resulting in a downer, saddened that such a wonderful movie appears as such a poor looking transfer on Blu-ray, no matter how much of it is intentional on the part of director Andrew Davis and how much is the result of a bad disc (and I believe the latter to be the main culprit).


The Fugitive Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.0 of 5

The Fugitive is brought to justice on Blu-ray with a paltry, though certainly lively and acceptable, Dolby Digital 5.1 sound mix. While for the most part good, it left me to wonder just how much better a lossless option would have been (in those rare instances I wasn't crying over the pitiful video transfer). This one is very active nonetheless, working the surrounds overtime, as well as the subwoofer. The opening title sequence is nothing if impressive, making for a very enjoyable opening aural experience. Bass really rocks, even if it is a tad muffled and less defined than we're used to hearing in the top-notch lossless mixes. The bus crash and train wreck are, as usual, fantastic demo material, or at least they were at one point in time. It's been far surpassed in these past years, but I remember when this scene was the hot scene to show off at the home theater stores selling then top-of-the-line equipment. I didn't note any problem with dialogue reproduction or levels, and I never had any issues discerning what was happening because of muffled or muted dialogue. For a lossy mix, and one that's been around for a long time, I was impressed. Granted, it's been several years since I screened this film on DVD, but having seen it multiple times on both that format and on VHS, not to mention once at the theater, I can safely say that, despite the lack of a high-definition track, this is the best I've ever heard The Fugitive sound.
